Bunny Cream Cookies

25 Mar

Bunny Cream Cookies Heading into Easter week I decided to make some cookies. We will actually be at the beach for Spring Break so I wanted to get these done early so I could spend next weekend packing and not baking.

Bunny Cream CookiesI was so glad my daughter, Madison, and I made these cookies. It was fun experimenting and playing around with these. Bunny Cream Cookies I wanted to go for a simply version of bunny cookies so that my daughter could help me. She actually rolled, cut and shaped almost all of these cookies. I started out by showing her what I wanted to do with this bunny cookie and she finished off the project in no time! That is Madison and Isabella, well at least their fingers!! Had to give her a chance to do a shout out since she helped me so much with these! Bunny Cream Cookies This cookie is my basic cream cookie recipe and then I just adapted it by changing the shape. We also threw in a few egg shaped cookies to just mix it up a bit! ENJOY!

pink egg shaped sprinkles

15 Hershey’s Kisses

1. Preheat oven to 325. Prepare cookie sheet using parchment paper.

5. Incorporate all for a nice soft dough. Put on counter top.

6. Roll the dough out using more flour if needed so it is not sticky.

8. Place on cookie sheet. Decorate ears with pink sprinkles and nose with pink egg shaped sprinkle.

9. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes until edge of cookie is brown.

10. In the meantime, melt Hershey’s kisses over double boiler. Place in baggie to pipe.

11. When cookies are done, cool for 10 minutes. Pipe chocolate for the eyes and mouth. ENJOY!

***notes***

I always use a plastic sandwich baggie to do any piping. Just clip the end a little to make the eyes and mouth.

If chocolate starts to harden, place the baggie in microwave to remelt. I did this several times and worked like a charm.

Also the egg sprinkles I got out of combination container of sprinkles. It was a spring edition of sprinkles.

Chocolate Conversation Hearts Sour Cream Cookies

Chocolate Conversation Hearts Sour Cream Cookies

I do not know if you remember but back around Christmas time I shared with you a family recipe called Cream Cookies.

Well ever since then I have been thinking about how I could make these for Valentine’s day.

I have seen all over the Internet conversation hearts and different types of recipes and techniques.

Chocolate Conversation Hearts Sour Cream Cookies

I really wanted to try my hand at them but having 4 kids and seeming to be so busy all of the time I wanted to get these done the easiest way I could.

A few years back at Christmas time whenever this cookie was made some family members started buying cream cheese frosting to smear onto the tops of these cookies and eat them like that.

So I thought to myself why not make my cream cheese frosting, color it and bingo. Conversation Heart Cookies.

I made them chocolate because it’s Valentine’s Day. You gotta have chocolate.

Chocolate Conversation Hearts Sour Cream Cookies

I also did some without the frosting as well, so you could see how these look plain. You can also spruce them up a little with just a touch of powdered sugar.

Again these are so versatile that you can top them even with red sprinkles and you still will have a really good cookie.  My husband likes to spread strawberry jam on them. It is actually pretty good that way as well.

If you do not have too much time in the day, this dough can be made the day before then refrigerated and finished up the next day. I made this into a three day project. The first day I made the dough and 20 minutes later I was done.

The second day I cut them and baked them. That took a little longer so I was in the kitchen for about an hour. On the third day I decorated them. Again I spent another hour in the kitchen.

Whichever way you decide to make these and serve them up I hope you enjoy and  have fun with it!

This icing was made thick so I could pipe onto the cupcakes and so it would hold its shape.

You can add more milk to make it more spreadable if you would like to spread the icing on.

**notes**
1. These cookies can be cooked longer if you like a crunchy cookie, which my husband does so I make a tray just for him.

2. You can decorate after the cookie has cooled using frosting of your choice.

3. This is the half recipe, it can be doubled.

4. I only use sandwich bags for decorating. I cut the tip of one end to the size I want to pipe.

Funfetti Week! Final Day! Funfetti Sugar Cookie

18 Jan

Funfetti Sugar Cookie

This is the last of Funfetti for awhile. It was Fun! As I said yesterday it was great trying to think of new ways to incorporate the Funfetti Cake Mix into recipes. Well I am pretty excited about this last one! I was quite curious as to how this was going to work. I was pleasantly surprised that my idea went pretty smoothly. No natural disasters in the kitchen, so that is always pretty encouraging.

Funfetti Sugar Cookie

Making a cookie recipe is a great way to get the kids into the kitchen to help. My 4 yr old stood up on her chair and helped a little with this one. She actually did more licking of the beaters than anything else, but it was great making them with her. So if you have some time grab a cake mix and bake!
